    someone said the original problem has parenthesis around the 2... this is quoted directly from the link musht posted .

    "48÷2(9+3) = ???? "


    does anyone see parenthesis around the 2?

    PEMDAS:

    Parenthesis - anything inside () or brackets gets broken down to simplest form.
    Exponents - anything with exponent gets broken down to simplest form
    Multiplication - start from left to right, do mult or divison, whichever comes first.
    Division - start from left to right, do mult or division, whichever comes first.
    Addition - start from left to right, do add or subtract, whichever comes first.
    Subtraction - start from left to right, do add or subract, whichever comes first.


    ps. thing start handing out 2 day banhammers for anyone that gets 2 lol. and if they claim they are a genius and still get 2, give them a 7day ban :P

    ps2. LOL mino i just looked at your link, that guy banned you lmao.
    VIPs can't ban :P

    Curious, what's the significance of being a VIP other than recognition?

    it all depends on how the problem is written...
    whether its
    48
    ---- =2
    2(9+3)

    or

    48
    ---- (9+3) = 288
    2

    PEMDAS

    List of priorities:

    1) Parenthesis (this mean what ever is in the INSIDE)
    2) Exponents
    2) Mult AND Div
    3) Add AND Sub

    So we have 48/2(9+3)

    We firstly take care of the inside of the parenthesis (9+3) and we get 48/2(12), we are now done with all the parenthesis cus 12 can't be broken down more.

    We now move onto Mult and Div from LEFT TO RIGHT. We do the first one we see. And the first one is 48/2 so we get 24*12 = 288.

    /thread.
    agreed =P~

    wtf your all wrong its...

    48 / 2 (9+3)

    and because theres brackets in this equation first you must move the number in the brackets with the one beside it which is 2 in this case...

    which means =
    48 / 12 = 4

    4 * 2 = 8

    but you got to remember whenever there is brackets that you have to add 5

    so your answer is 13

    and because 13 is a unlucky number... it gets rounded up to 15

    simple maths guyzzz come on now

    Maybe one day we'll grow up? because not every1 has said that you said 288..

    now your going to come back with a post that is totally irrelevant to what I said.

    Wow are you seriously incapable of forming an English sentence?

    Who's "we" kemosabe, You just told us "it all depends on how the problem is written" - there's only 1 way you can read it, because there is only 1 way you solve that problem. It's not a discussion, it's a mathematical fact. Anyone who disagrees simply does not know. You just repeated everyone before you as if you have any idea of what's going on. Now go away, you're annoying.
